Land Drainage Investment on the rise08-Jun-2017 William Morfoot Land Drainage
Interest in Land Drainage as a method of raising long term yield potential has increased as the stark effect of saturated soils last season have resulted in significant drops in yield on some farms. Secondary factors such as Blackgrass (which thrives in wet ground) have also raised the overall interest in owning well drained soils. "Cereals Event provides a great platform to talk directly about the benefits that land drainage can provide on your farm with farmers being able to visit our stand and discuss their issues with drainage on their farms," says Tim Sisson of Morfoots. "Many clients are now using the show as a platform to kick starting long term drainage improvement programs on their farms - replacing old and outdated schemes from teh 60's and 70's." William Morfoot Ltd have been draining land since 1962 from their base in Norfolk. Today, they complete land drainage projects on farmland across the UK with all projects being undertaken to raise the long term yield potentials and raise profitability going forwards.
